Excellent school, low salary
Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 8, 2018
This is a great company to work for if you have another source of income, are single, or working through college.

Great university. Working and commuting very hard, while being paid less than a teacher doesn't make sense.

Students are mostly great and respectful
Full Time Lecturer (Current Employee) –  Bronx, NYJune 4, 2018
Getting to class 30 minutes early to set up the smart room and work with any student in need of extra help in Mylanguagelab; usually teaching four classes per day, three times a week and office hours: 2 to 2 and a half after teaching.
I have learned tremendously from my students and from my colleagues and the most enjoyable part of my job was being in a beautiful campus and to be able to teach amazing groups of students. The campus is very suitable to drive because it has a big parking garage.
Pros
Beautiful campus
Cons
Don't pay well and no job security

Fordham staff culture is bad for morale
Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Bronx, NYMay 31, 2018
Upper management is Fordham educated and usually the only job they ever had. This fact makes the working culture very uncomfortable since most of the older management appear to think like the 50s or 60s. Very uncomfortable.
Pros
free education for employees and immediate family
Cons
management is mostly old and seem to think that society still works like the 50s

Project Management Internship (Former Employee) –  Rose Hill CampusMarch 12, 2018
I learned a great deal in a short time. Management didn't just care about the work getting done, they cared about you growing as a person and getting back out in the job market.
Pros
Working on a beautiful campus doing real projects.
Cons
It was an internship.

Depends on department
Assistant Director (Former Employee) –  Bronx, NYFebruary 1, 2018
Worked in a department of wonderful people which made the stress and workload of the job worth it. However, many departments are at a breaking point in terms of workload vs human resources per department, making collaboration and innovation difficult.
